Coerver EW announce 2018 Coerver Intro course dates

Following the hugely successful Coerver® EW Coach Education Pathway courses that were delivered throughout 2017, today marks the public launch of the first courses to be scheduled in 2018, following a priority booking window earlier this week.

The 1-day Coerver® Intro Course is the foundation of the Coerver® Coach Education Pathway and provides attendees with a theoretical and practical based overview of the evolution of the Coerver® method since being founded in 1984.

Central to the course is Coerver® Coaching’s latest approach to teaching Ball Mastery &
1 v 1 skills, from mastery to game effective use. Since being founded in 1984, both topics have been and continue to be fundamental to both Coerver® coach and player education.

The Coerver® Intro course will be delivered by Coerver® England & Wales Director, Scott Wright, who is able to draw from experience in delivering Coerver® Coach Education across the globe at all levels of the game since joining the organisation in 2005.

“Since our first Youth Diploma course in 2011, our Coach Education Pathway has continued to evolve with our Intro course being the latest addition” said Scott. “Following successful Youth Diploma 1 and 2 courses during 2017, interest in our 2018 Intro courses has been high.”

“In our opinion, Ball Mastery and 1 v 1 skills are two of the most important topics to teach young players but are two of the least understood by coaches. A lot of this can be put down to the lack of focus/detail on national federation courses”

“Our Intro course aims to bridge that gap of knowledge and no matter the level that coaches work at, whether that be grassroots or professional or whether you have previously attended our Youth Diploma 1 or 2, this course will be highly beneficial.”

“In our opinion these are two topics that you have to understand if you want your players to fulfil their potential and be as effective in the game as possible, now and in the future.”

“Attendees will receive some fantastic resources including our newly designed Intro course handbook and access to our new course support site which provides bespoke video  covering all practical content delivered.”

“We are very excited to announce these dates and look forward to working with coaches from across the UK and further afield, in both London and Manchester during April.”

The latest video in FourFourTwo Performance’s ‘You Ask, We Answer’ series was released earlier today and features Coerver® EW Director, Scott Wright and Brazilian legend, Kaka.

The former AC Milan, Real Madrid CF and Brazil International shares his experience with viewers, focusing on how he developed his two-footed ability.

“It’s great to work with FourFourTwo Performance for the second time on their new you ask, we answer series” said Coerver® EW Director, Scott Wright.

“This is particularly special for us with a true legend of the game, Kaka, sharing his experiences and we are really pleased to of had the opportunity to collaborate on this video with a player of his stature”.

“It’s also fantastic to hear the importance that he placed on developing both feet during his career which very much aligns with our own thinking on technical development”.

March 2018 will see Coerver® EW Director, Scott Wright, return to the Real Madrid University to lecture on their MSc in Talent Identification and Development in Soccer Course which is held at the Villaviciosa de Odon campus.

2018 will be the fifth consecutive year that Scott has been invited to deliver on the course which is ran in joint partnership between the European University of Madrid (Universidad Europea) and the world’s biggest football club, Real Madrid CF.

During the 1-day class, course students will be guided through two classroom theory and practical training sessions in addition to an in-depth Q&A providing an overview of the Coerver® Coaching method.

“Once again, it is truly an honour to be invited to return and deliver on what is one of the most prestigious football education courses available in the world” said Scott. “Over the last four years, we have received fantastic feedback from the students and course director who feel that the Coerver® methodology adds real value and supplements the existing modules of work and current knowledge base that they have.”

“Presenters are brought in from across the professional game who are currently working with some of the world’s leading clubs and national teams. For example, last year the Head of Sevilla FC’s academy delivered the class the day before ourselves. This course provides students with a truly global view of current football trends and methods, not just in the classroom but equally out on the pitch.”

“When you combine this with the knowledge and experience of the course students, with a number already working within the professional game and blend that with the knowledge and experience of the biggest football club in the world, this truly is a benchmark Master’s degree in the field of Football and creates an incredible learning environment for all.”

“The global football network that is associated to the course enables the students to work with, visit and collaborate with the worlds’ leading football clubs and organisations and it’s great for ourselves at Coerver® Coaching EW to be classed within that bracket by the Real Madrid university and I’m really looking forward to this years visit.”

Coerver EW Director presents at Spanish International Coaching Congress

Coerver® England & Wales Director, Scott Wright, recently returned from the Spanish capital where he was invited to present at the Madrid International Football Congress which was hosted in the city at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos between Friday 30th June – Sunday 2nd July 2017.

The congress was organized in partnership between the RFEF (Royal Spanish Football Federation) and Emtrenar Football Institute, with coaches from all levels of the game traveling from across Spain and South America to attend the three-day event.

Guest presenters were handpicked by RFEF master coaching director Daniel Guidos, who also works within the academy at Real Madrid CF, with the objective of providing Congress attendees with a global view of the latest football coaching methods.

In addition to Scott, guest presenters who work and have worked at some of the world’s leading clubs and national federations including the RFEF, Juventus, River Plate, Ajax and FC Porto delivered alongside experts working at the highest level in Futsal and a number of Olympic sports.

“I am extremely honored to have been invited to present at such a prestigious event and thank Daniel Guidos from the RFEF for inviting me and for also bringing together people with many differing views on the game which lead to some very interesting discussions” said Scott.

“My presentations were well received, the first one was based on the 33-year evolution of Coerver Coaching and the second based on the importance of ball mastery and 1 v 1 skills teaching”.

“I had a number of coaches from the national federation and La Liga clubs discussing with me afterward that they felt Coerver could play a very important part in the evolution of both coach and player development in Spain and subsequently there has been a number of follow up emails so watch this space!”.

“Having worked regularly in Spain since 2012, it’s a place I always enjoy visiting. Continuing the work I have been doing with the Real Madrid CF university over the last four years and now with the RFEF/Emtrenar Football Institute is something I am really looking forward to as we head into the new season”.

Coerver Youth Diploma 2 Course Booking Launch

Coerver® Coaching England & Wales are pleased to announce that on-line booking is now open for our Youth Diploma 2 course which will take place at the Watford FC Academy in London on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th October 2017.

This follows the last Coerver® Youth Diploma 2 course delivered in England & Wales which was also hosted in London, during May 2016, at Millwall FC. The course will be delivered by Coerver® Coaching co-founder Alf Galustian, who will be assisted by Coerver® England & Wales Director Scott Wright.

The Youth Diploma 2 course expands on the knowledge obtained during the Youth Diploma 1 and is based on how to develop a team style through individual and small group skills, both in and out of possession.

“We are really looking forward to delivering this Youth Diploma 2 course at Watford FC academy in October and welcoming coaches from across the world who have previously attended our Youth Diploma 1 course in the many countries we are operational in” said Coerver® England & Wales Director, Scott Wright. “The location of the Watford FC academy is perfect for coaches that will be flying in due to the close proximity to Heathrow airport. This was an important factor in our planning of facilitating the course at this location – a factor which will make it as easy as possible for attendees to travel to and from.”

“At the time of writing, there are only two Youth Diploma 2 courses scheduled for the whole of the 2017-18 season in Europe, so we expect demand to attend this course will be at an all-time high. With this in mind, we offered coaches that had attended the Youth Diploma 1 course in England and Wales a 72-hour priority booking window which expired today at midday which has seen approximately 75% of all available places being booked and the course is now on general release.”
“The concept of our Youth Diploma 2 course is to expand on the knowledge gained in our Coerver® Intro and Youth Diploma 1 courses and focuses on the development of a team style. This isn’t in a tactical or formation sense but a technical and mindset sense with the proviso that you can only play a certain way within the team structure if you have players that possess certain individual and small group skills as well as a particular mindset.”

“This course will also provide the rare opportunity to learn directly from Coerver® co-founder Alf Galustian who will be sharing his thirty three plus years of applied knowledge and experience working at all levels of the game with course attendees, so this is sure to be a weekend which will be hugely valuable for all.”

Coerver EW Director invited to present at Spanish FA International Football Congress

This weekend will see Coerver® EW director Scott Wright travel back to Madrid to present at the RFEF (Royal Spanish Football Federation) / Emtrenar football Institute, International football Congress hosted by Rey Juan Carlos University from Friday 30th June – Sunday 2nd July 2017.

Having worked at the Real Madrid university in March 2017 for the fourth year running, Scott will join guest presenters who work and have worked at some of the world’s leading clubs and national federations including the RFEF, Juventus, River Plate, Ajax and FC Porto.

Further presenters working at the highest level in Futsal and Olympic sports will present to delegates during the annual three-day congress which will bring together professional coaches from across Spain.

“It’s obviously a massive honour to have been invited to present at such a prestigious event” said Scott. “The RFEF are without a doubt one of the truly elite national federations in world football and have a development model in place, both for players and coaches, which has brought huge success for the nation on the international stage from junior to senior level.”

“Only last night their U21’s have reached yet another major final which is such an important part of the development process if the players are to make the next step up to success in senior international football.”

“Having worked in Spain regularly since 2012, one of the things I know is that as a nation they are always looking at ways to improve and they take coach education and development very seriously. Also having worked on the Real Madrid CF university MSc course in talent ID and football development for the last four years, I’ve learned a lot about the development process not only at Real Madrid but also as a nation.”

“I would like to thank RFEF MSc coaching course director, Daniel Guidos, who also works at Real Madrid CF, for the invitation to present. It’s great that someone of his standing, knowledge, and experience in Spanish coaching and player development values the contribution we can provide.”

“The organisations and individuals I have worked with here really see the benefits that the Coerver programme can add to the development model that currently exists in Spain and I’m really looking forward to working with the delegates of the Congress in Madrid this weekend.”

Updates from the weekend will be shared across @coerverEW social media channels during the weekend.
